Five Essential Strategies in Motivating Clients to Change
Addictions Program Clinical Day 2011: Keynote Presentation with Dr. Marilyn Herie PhD, RSW
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is an evidence-based approach for a range of health behaviours and conditions, including addiction and mental health. MI has been described as "simple but not easy," with hundreds of publications in the literature outlining the underlying spirit and clinical strategies. How to make sense of all this? What are the key applications that practitioners need to know? Dr. Marilyn Herie shares her top five motivational strategies with an emphasis on practical tips and tools.
1. Identify practical strategies to motivate change
2. Reflect on how you can adapt these strategies with your clients
3. Set concrete objectives for clinical practice
